Hi,

 

This is my new car, its a 2 year old focus titanium in vision blue with the 100ps version of the 1.6 petrol engine.

 

 

It has the usual titanium spec with a few options ticked, DAB, keyless entry, push button start, heated seats, Bluetooth, voice control, and rear parking sensor.

 

 

 

I'll be giving it a good wash, clay and machine polish when I get a free weekend, but the paint is in pretty good condition really.

So far I've fitted a brodit phone cradle and some ford oem mudflaps, but that's all. I've got a few other bits waiting to be fitted when time and weather allow...

 

Clear fog light lens - I might do the dual reverse mod in the future, but just a clear lens and red bulb for now.

 

Zetec S aluminium sport pedals - these were an optional accessory on the titanium.

 

New alloy centre caps - these have corroded quite a lot, spoiling the look of the alloys

 

LED rear tail lights - again these were an option on the titanium.

 

That's about it for now really, I'm a fan of keeping things original looking, so I'm mainly just looking at fitting oem parts and optional extras that the car doesn't have.

 

 I'll probably replace the headlight and front fog light bulbs with a combination of  Phillips xtreme vision and night breakers towards winter, I had those in my last car and they were decent.

 

I'll be looking around the forum for other ideas, so any suggestions are welcome!

Thanks

 

Alex

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the replies. It looks like there are loads of good guides on here, especially from Lenny in particular!

It rained today but hopefully I can get a few of my new bits on the car this week and then I'm already getting a few ideas from you guys for what to do next.

I wish I had a garage!

Thanks very much,
I don't have a garage neither but I'm considering a pop up gazebo ;)
I've also created a guide on fitting those RS tail lights you've bought,
And I've just realised it wasn't in my signature list until now.

I don't even have a drive so the gazebo option is no good for me! I just need to move, what was I thinking, the car is much more important than the house!

I've just read the led lights guide, looks good, looks straight forward actually. (Although in my experience the easiest jobs sometimes end up taking the longest!!)

The ford instructions are great aren't they, step one: remove lights, step 2: fit new lights.....no mention of how!

I need a gazebo too purely because on my drive I have to park under a tree !!!!!! Bits poo and berries is the worst !! Most of the time I take the risk of parking on the grass out the front of my house... I dread the Saturday night pi55 heads !!

And you are spot on about the easy jobs taking the longest from personal experiences !!

+1 mate I'm all with you on that theroy, all you need is a man cave with enough space for the focus net to the 48" led TV

I've just read the led lights guide, looks good, looks straight forward actually. (Although in my experience the easiest jobs sometimes end up taking the longest!!)

Hardest part is unplugging the existing light units from the loom,
After that its a straight swap.

The ford instructions are great aren't they, step one: remove lights, step 2: fit new lights.....no mention of how!

+1 why did they even bother printing that price of instruction lol,
No mention of selling the existing units; ow no, just disconnect and bin them each in their own individual aluminium refuse container with lid lol, no consideration for the second hand market at all,

Hi guys,

I finally got around to fitting my led tail lights today with the help of Lenny's guide.

It was very straight forward, the hardest bit was fiddling around behind the plastic in the boot to find the loom plugs without actually being able to see them.

There was a remarkable amount of crap accumulated behind the old light clusters!
.
Looking forward to it going dark now...

My tax is due up at the end off this month, which inspired me to to do a way with the dealers saggy plastic holder. Picked this up on eBay, its a very close match for my paint colour actually...

This is the phone cradle that I mentioned in my first post. I'd recommend it, its pretty sturdy and it just clips in to panel gaps, so no screws or glue damage if you choose to remove it.

For the focus they do three mounting options, the one I've got to the left of the air con controls, the bottom of the driver's A pillar or the right hand centre air vent. They have fittings for all modern smart phones but they're not cheap really, mine was about £40.
